Cozy home within walking distance of town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Idyllwild for four days and three nights. We were two families, four adults and 3 kids (8, 8, and 4). There was more than enough room for us. In fact, we easily could have had another family join us and have space. The house is spacious with several rooms. We were able to play pool and listen to records at night without waking the kids, as they slept in another room on the opposite side of the house.

The house is approximately 10 minute walk from the center of town. This was great for a morning stroll for coffee.

David was a helpful host. He made sure we checked-in and checked-out with no issues, and was available throughout our four day stay.

An A-MA-ZING house and a wonderful host.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and our children, as well as my parents, and my sister and her family spent last weekend at David's house.

We rented homes all over the States as well as in Europe and that was from far the very best house we stayed in. What a gem !

It is located in a quiet street, in the middle of a beautiful forest, but 10mns walking distance from Idyllwild stores, restaurants, market.

The house is very welcoming, very spacious, very comfortable. It has a living-room with a fireplace, a large dining-room, a beautiful family room with a billiard AND an amazing music room with an extraordinary grand piano and organ. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a gourmet dinner. From each room you have a marvelous view of the majestic pines through large windows and skylights.

Internet is fast. You have TV, dozens of games to play with, hundreds of records to listen to, books available. This is a real dream house and I didn't mention yet the garden, the deck with groups of tables, chairs to enjoy the beautiful outdoors.

David is a first class host. From the day of booking to our arrival ( he called to be sure we had all we needed , recommended hikes ...).

Thank you, David, for opening your wonderful home.

All of us ( 3 generations) had a wonderful time. We didn't want to leave, and can't wait to come back.

Dreaming Of A White Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Back in early March, 2016 my wife started talking about gathering the family for a Christmas mountain retreat. After looking at the Idyllwild postings we decided to contact David to book his property. We couldn't be happier with the results! From first contact through the day after Christmas when we left, David made sure we were well taken care of. And to top things off, a storm blew into the area and dropped 5"-6" of fresh snow just in time for the Christmas celebration. Over the weekend David called a couple of times to confirm everything was going smoothly. On the morning we were scheduled to leave there was still major snow accumulation in the driveway. David told me not to worry about shoveling to get the cars out, he would call a plow - which he did. A few hours later the driveway was cleared and we were able to pack and drive away.....sadly. Everyone in the family expressed having a wonderful holiday experience and were wondering aloud if this was going to start a new family tradition. Thank you David for being an excellent host!
